Fe isotope composition of Archean sulfides do not record progressive oxygenation of the ocean
"In the history of this continuously evolving planet, the Great Oxygenation Event (GOE), which occurred at ca. 2.3 Ga (Bekker et al., 2004; Holland, 2006) was a critical environmental change. This event was first recognized by the disappearance of detrital uraninite, pyrite, and siderite, from the siliciclastic record, as well as by shales that do not contain appreciable amounts of redox-sensitive elements and paleosols that are not oxidized before ca. 2.3 Ga (Holland, 2006).
